Course description
 This course is aimed at giving simultaneously an insight into basic structures of German, US and British administrative law and procedure and simultaneously into the functioning of public bureaucracies under the conditions of the rule of law. The course will concentrate on sectors of administrative law which are paradigmatic for the transition in Eastern Europe: the preventive protection of public order, building law and environmental law. Practical Western and Eastern experience in permit procedures, public participation and interest representation and the possibilities of judicial review will be discussed.  The conditions of balancing public and private interest in administration with special reference to the available resources in Eastern Europe will be reviewed.

The course is offered to undergraduates and graduates in law, public administration and political sciences.
